Jun 21, 2024

Dutch Foreign Minister Hanke Brains Slot welcomed the approval of the 14th package of sanctions against Russia by the EU member states.

According to Yevropeiska Pravda, she made the announcement on Twitter.


According to her, this package contains several important measures that the Netherlands has strongly advocated, including firm opposition to Russia's "shadow fleet" of tankers and the imposition of sanctions against it.

"Thanks to this package of sanctions, the 'shadow fleet' may be denied access to European ports and services," said Brains Slot.

She emphasized that it is extremely important for EU member states to continue working on new EU sanctions.

"This will significantly slow down the military machine of (Russian leader Vladimir) Putin," the Dutch Foreign Minister summarized.
